They mention a past event in October and the need to avoid further escalation. The speaker humorously compares the person to a drunk uncle at a wedding, causing embarrassment but trying to defend them to others. They also accuse the person of violating international law, which complicates the situation. The speaker then shifts to discuss military technology, claiming to have designed a Patriot system and identifying a decoy in a video. They express surprise at the lack of a nuclear threat and discuss the military capabilities and strategies, including the use of 'wild weaseling' as a tactic against air defense systems.



💡Patriot system

The Patriot system is a surface-to-air missile system designed to intercept and destroy tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and aircraft. In the script, it is mentioned that a Patriot system has been lost, which the speaker claims to be a decoy rather than a functioning system. This is significant as it suggests a military deception tactic and highlights the speaker's expertise in the system.

💡Wild weaseling

Wild weaseling is a military tactic described in the script where an enemy radar locks onto a target, which then retaliates by locking onto the enemy radar with a HARM missile. It is portrayed as a dangerous yet joyful American pastime in the video, indicating a sense of bravado and skill in countermeasures.

💡Sixth generation fighter

A sixth generation fighter refers to a conceptual class of fighter aircraft currently under various stages of research and development. The script mentions a global competition among six nations, including the U.S. and China, to develop the world's first sixth generation fighter, emphasizing the ongoing technological arms race and the quest for military superiority.

💡Bradley and HIMARS

The Bradley and HIMARS are both U.S. military vehicles used for different combat roles. The Bradley is an infantry fighting vehicle, while the HIMARS is a high mobility artillery rocket system. Their mention in the script suggests an escalation in military support or intervention, possibly in a conflict scenario.


A decoy in military terms is a device or tactic used to deceive the enemy into believing something is true when it is not. In the context of the script, it is used to describe a false Patriot system, indicating a strategic misdirection or a form of psychological warfare.


Propaganda refers to information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote a political cause or point of view. The speaker in the script dismisses potential accusations of propaganda, suggesting that the information presented is based on their expertise and not on misleading claims.

💡International law

International law comprises the rules and norms governing the relationships between nations. The script implies that certain actions may have violated these laws, placing the speaker in a difficult position. This reflects the broader theme of legality and ethics in warfare.

💡Streaming services

Streaming services are online platforms that deliver media content like movies, TV shows, and music directly to consumers over the internet. The script discusses the bundling of these services, comparing it to traditional cable TV but with the added benefit of choice and customization, albeit with the reintroduction of commercials.


Commercials are short advertisements that promote products or services, often broadcast during television or radio programs. In the context of the script, they are mentioned in relation to streaming services, highlighting a shift from the original ad-free appeal of streaming to a model that includes commercial interruptions.

💡Abrams tank

The Abrams tank refers to the M1 Abrams, a main battle tank used by the United States military. The script humorously mentions the creation of fake Abrams tanks for display, indicating a symbolic show of military power and the perception of invincibility associated with U.S. military equipment.

💡Plasma weapons

Plasma weapons, while not real, are often depicted in science fiction as advanced energy weapons that use plasma.

from retaliate for the attack in October


hang on and now I'm far enough that


YouTube won't get mad if I start cussing


bro I'm trying to be super cool and


just look the other way on some but


every single day you're becoming more


and more like that drunk uncle that


drinks way too much at everybody's


wedding and I'm just like trying


to explain to everyone else like he's


really a nice guy when you get to know


him I am arguably and reasonably certain


that you have violated international law


at this point which puts me in a hell of


a predicament take that Ukraine


you see at America they have lost one of


your Patriot systems and this time I


have it on video look I know you're


going to say it's all propaganda and


lies but you know I designed that


thing right so I can tell very


very clearly that that was not an actual


functioning system and that was instead


a decoy also fourth wall break me


individually as the Creator I have


worked with that system for over 12


years and I currently teach it


at the senior leader level I know what


I'm looking at that being said I'm also


not going to go into all those details


because I don't feel like helping Russia


I'm surprised you didn't build like 19


fake Abrams to put them in Moscow for


your Victory Day Parade you keep


bringing that up I see you're still


upset about it relax Uncle Sam I got


this one so tell me this why is it when


one of our tanks get destroyed it's


almost completely intact and when yours


get destroyed it looks like they've been


face by plasma weapons from


wakanda I build the best tanks and armor


personnel carriers in the world and I


have more of them than anybody else oh


yeah I forgot your stuff's invincible


and perfect and you have a ton of it and


this is no big deal and it's still a


military operation and not an actual


War so you're not going to be


upset at all when I tell you that we got


more Bradley's and himars headed that


way are you wa the would you do


that no they will they will just become


more debris ow I'm impressed you didn't


threaten nukes This Time by the way

American News streaming services are


coming together and getting bundled made
